332nd Air Expeditionary Wing 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing

The 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing is the most forward-deployed Air Force wing in Iraq. The wing has pioneered modern warfare tactics using advanced weapons systems such as the F-16 Fighting Falcon, A-10 II Thunderbolt and the MQ-1 Predator unmanned aircraft system for close-air support and traditional and non-traditional intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

The Tuskegee Airmen from the 332nd Fighter Group in World War II are the lineal ancestors of the current 332nd Expeditionary Operations Group.  The Tuskegee Airmen began their story in the 1940s in Tuskegee, Ala., when they became the subjects of a military experiment known as the Tuskegee Experience. The Tuskegee Institute, a small black college in Alabama, was charged with training African-Americans to be military pilots and part of the air crew, ground crew or operations support staff.
